In its official announcement, Cebu Pacific said the 20 percent discount and the 12 percent value-added tax (VAT) exemption on airfares will be given to qualified senior citizens and persons with disabilities (PWDs).

“That means that bookings of Cebu Pacific flights by eligible senior citizens and PWDs, whether done via ticket office, online via the CEB website, or through the CEB mobile app, now reflect the applicable discounts on the base fare for flights within the Philippines.”

The discount, however, only covers airfare and excludes other services such as such as food, baggage allowance and seat selection.

To avail of the discount, these are the procedures / requirements:

“Upon check-in, passengers who availed of the discount are required to present their Senior Citizen ID issued by the Office of Senior Citizen Affairs (OSCA); or PWD ID issued by the National Council on Disability Affairs (NCDA). In lieu of these, they may show other valid government-issued IDs that reflect their nationality and birthdate such as Passport, Driver’s License, Voter’s ID, SSS/GSIS ID, PRC Card, Postal ID, PWD ID issued by the Office of Persons with Disability Affairs (PDAO) or the City/Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO/MSWDO) of the place where the PWD resides, or their Transportation Discount Fare Identification Card issued by the National Council for the Welfare of Disabled Persons (NCWDP).”
